Yesterday I was at work, so couldn't see it anyway, but hopefully I can see Kei's singles rubber tomorrow
So are there any japanese paid TV that covers this tie live in Japan?
It's ashame the free to air don't promote it more to the public though.
Nope. Not even WOWOW that shows summaries of World Group matches when everyone has forgotten about it.
J-Sports used to cover DC matches but not anymore. It's a real shame!
Sadly, for many people in Japan tennis is something you do for fun, not a spectators' sports.
But tickets sell very well at Japan Open and Toray Panpacific, so I think many people will watch it if it's on TV. I guess it's just free-to-air TVs are being lazy they don't like to be involved in tennis broadcast because you'd never know when the match will end.
